Education for a Better Food Future

Food is a requisite for living and a central part of everyday life – yet how much thought do we give to how food is produced, distributed and consumed? And what about the impact of our agrifood systems on both our bodies and the environment?

Where does our food come from? Do we really know exactly what we are eating? How is climate change affecting our food supply? What is nutritious food and why is it so important for our physical and mental development?

Far too many children and teenagers lack access to food education and an understanding of how food systems work. Yet knowledge is a key driver for the sustainable, systemic changes we need to make to our global agrifood systems, now more than ever.

The World Food Forum Education track aims to provide access to knowledge and actionable solutions for healthy diets and a healthy planet, while inspiring children and youth everywhere to create a better food future for all.
